The Mirror - make pollution great again

2019

Installation in public space

72 Hours Urban Action, Jena Lobeda

The MIRROR was created on the motorway cover in Jena Lobeda as part of the architecture competition "72 Hours Urban Action". The urban installation reacts to the existing situation on site and transforms the disturbing noise from the motorway and the constant wind into a visual and acoustic wind chime. A delicate net structure stretches over the existing seating and creates a feeling of calm without obstructing the view or the vastness of the place. Light, coloured stripes move with the wind and invite residents to linger under the installation.
